The Afflicted is a 3rd person shooter that pits 3 teams against each other in struggle for resources and power within a crumbling society.The Afflicted was developed from the beginning around the concept of player control. First glances might give the impression of a typical third person shooter, but a few concepts set it apart. It’s a game of cooperative team-building. Players are scored on the collection of resources that allow them to shape the growth of their team. A vital element of success is the creation of structures and barricades that can be placed at the whims of the players. A free-form movement system allows for creative navigation and evasion. The goal is to provide a refined, current-generation shooter that still manages to implement the kinds of choices that bring players back for more.
After almost a year in the shadows, The Afflicted has been retooled and is looking for a public playable demo in the near future. We're a small indie team, and we've been polishing the game to get it ready for the public as a free download. We're looking forward to getting feedback from our audience and seeing what you think!
We can't give out an exact release date just yet, but we wanted to give you a preview of what to expect. When we release our first playable, it will feature:
We're really excited to show you an update and look forward to providing more in the future. Make sure you check out all our new screenshots and the two new gameplay videos for SinglePoint and Capitol!
